Publisher Description

A darkly compelling serial-killer novel introducing the next big name in psychological thrillers and, in Carson Ryder, a fascinating and complex protagonist set for many books to come.

A body is found in the sweating heat of an Alabama night; headless, words inked on the skin. Detective Carson Ryder is good at this sort of thing – crazies and freaks. To his eyes it is no crime of passion, and when another mutilated victim turns up his suspicions are confirmed. This is not the work of a ‘normal’ murderer, but that of a serial killer, a psychopath.

Famous for solving a series of crimes the year before, Carson Ryder has experience with psychopaths. But he had help with that case – strange help, from a past Ryder is trying to forget.

Now he needs it again.

When the truth finally begins to dawn, it shines on an evil so twisted, so dangerous, it could destroy everything that he cares about…

Reviews

Praise for The Hundredth Man:

‘A chilling journey into a pitch-black mind’ Michael Marshall

‘The Hundredth Man has a crackerjack plot and wonderfully original rapid-fire prose. Jack Kerley is a writer to watch. And read.’ David Baldacci

‘The Hundredth Man delivers a sturdy hero with a clear-cut mission and a setting that holds possibilities for fresh adventures. Kerley writes in a thrusting style that pushes the action…’ New York Times Book Review

‘A serial killer novel with a difference. The whole story is told in prose as inventive as a fight to the death between embattled virtue and monstrous evil ought to be’ Kirkus

About the author

Jack Kerley worked in advertising and teaching before becoming a full-time novelist. He lives in Newport, Kentucky, but also spends a good deal of time in Southern Alabama, the setting for The Hundredth Man. He is married with two children.
